Though Tricia trusted Christ as her Savior as a child during her young adult college years she questioned whether her faith could be reconciled with the scientific and historical evidence. Determined to get answers, she embarked on a journey that eventually led her to study apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary. Since graduating from seminary, Tricia teaches on apologetics in diverse settings. She also teaches high school students Apologetics, Marriage and Family, Old and New Testament Survey courses.
Tricia is mom of 3 adult children, grandmom of 5, and a high school Bible teacher. She lives in Harrisburg, North Carolina, with her husband of 37 years, Randy, where they are active members of Hickory Grove Baptist Church North.
